1941, YU YOUREN CALLIGRAPHY SCROLL

Lot 0114 Details

Description
Yu Youren (于右任; April 11, 1879-November 10, 1964) Chinese traditional Ink Tao Shu calligraphy on paper, laid to silk, hanging scroll. Signed and dated, in the Mingguo 30th year (ca. 1941) as gift for Mr. Wu Guozhen 38th birthday.
Bold thick marks create the artistic writing on paper, by Yu Youren (1879-1964). An exquisite example of Tao Shu calligraphy form. Tsao Shu calligraphers simplify the left side of each character and give more space and emphasis to the right side. Tsau Shu calligraphers write swiftly and use many sudden turns and dramatic movements. This style of characters looks more like abstract painting than writing. The writing is attached to a protective scroll and a single official red seal is noted on the bottom left edge.


Dimensions: Scroll Height: 90 1/2" Width: 23 1/4" Painting Height: 52 3/4" Width: 12 3/4"

PROVENANCE:
From the heirloom collections of Wu Guozhen (吳國楨; October 21, 1903-June 6, 1984) was a Chinese political figure and historian, government official who served as mayor of Hankow (1932-1938), mayor of Chung-king (1939-1941), political vice minister of foreign affairs (1943-45), mayor of Shanghai (1946-1948), and governor of Taiwan (1950-1952) and the former Chairman of Taiwan Provincial Government. He resigned in 1953 and went to the United States.


K.C. Wu lived in the United States where he served as professor of Chinese history at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. During his time in the United States, he wrote various works, including a detailed analysis on Chinese culture in the context of mythology and early history in his book The Chinese Heritage.

Wu is remembered mainly for his vital role in the formation of a liberal modern Taiwan and his anti-communist beliefs typical of a member of Kuomintang, but he is also remembered for his brave anti-Kuomintang rhetoric and turbulent disagreements with the more Russian-styled second President of Taiwan.

LOT NOTES:
Yu Youren (于右任; April 11, 1879-November 10, 1964) Yu Yu-jen, was an educator, scholar, calligrapher, and politician in the Republic of China.
Yu was a scholar of calligraphy and is regarded as one China's modern masters. His works in cursive and semi-cursive manner are intensely animated. He is perhaps best known for his calligraphy and published related works on the topic. Because his later years were spent in Taiwan, his writing style is very popular and his works are considered very desirable by collectors. Yu completed numerous ink works, stone carvings, and title plaques while living in Taipei including works for the National Museum of History, Din Tai Fung, Xingtiang Temple, and the Shilin Official Residence. The Pamir Snow Gnawing Association established a cultural park known as the Pamir Cultural Park in a quiet and secluded mountainous area of Taipei City called Wuzhishan. The park commemorates about 300 KMT soldiers who hid out in the Pamir Mountains after the Chinese Civil War and were able to eventually escape to Taiwan. It had engraved at the site examples of the titles and poetry of Yu Yu-jen into stones and rocky outcroppings, forming a beautiful outdoor garden of his calligraphy. Among the hills of the area is an open space where the association erected a monument. Each of the characters for the title calligraphed by Yu Yu-jen was engraved into individual slabs of marble and then inlaid into a concrete pillar.
